Abstract

In the literature reviewed, a lack in leadership competencies to deal with globalisation within the South African Industrial Development Zones was identified. This led to questions being raised on the prevalence of these essential global leadership competencies within these zones. Realising the need for the development of an outwardly focused and globally competitive leadership model this study sought to investigate the key generic leadership competencies relevant to globalisation and the demonstration of these competencies within the zones. The study also sought to investigate:

  1. The key generic leadership competencies relevant to globalisation;
  2. The specific relevant leadership competencies and their prevalence within the industrial development zones in South Africa; and
  3. Whether or not the surveyed global leadership competencies were significant and had impact on global leadership competencies that rendered leaders capable of operating in a global environment.
The study was conducted in three of the four Industrial Development Zones in South Africa. The fourth zone declined the researcher's invitation to participate due to the fact that at the time of the study it was undergoing structural changes which would have impacted the researcher's access to information.
